How to be literate in what’s changing journalism » Pressthink | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
In my ‘digital thinking’ class, the goal is for students to emerge fully literate in the changes affecting journalism. Here are the main currents and trends that I expect them to master by the close of the term.

For each, they should understand: What it means, why it’s important, and where things are going with it. I’ve added a link or two to help get you started. And I’m happy to receive your comments about what’s missing from this list.
BeerBergman's insight:

Excellent list. Could be used in many other fields.

Journalists can learn lessons from coders in developing the creative future

Richard Sambrook: It's about more than learning JavaScript or Python – we need graduates who understand tech if the UK is to stay competitive
BeerBergman's insight:

The day before the official start of Dutch start-up Blendle.nl, a new concept of newspaper reading, the old question of coding or no coding competences for journalists, pops up in The Guardian (present at the start of Blendle in Utrecht, today :-). 

Even if you can say that hard coding competences is not the core activity of journalists, a thorough understanding of what technology is about, seems a non negociable issue to me.

Excerpts.

***

"It's about more than data journalism, although that certainly sits at the heart of the issue. New digital platforms and applications offer new means of illustrating and disseminating information – but should technical development simply be the province of technologists or should modern journalists take an active role in shaping these new opportunities?"

***

"

ndustry increasingly recognises the need to recruit graduates with both computer science and journalism skills. As online and mobile more clearly become the future of media, recruits are needed who can combine editorial judgment and sensibility with a technical understanding of what's possible. They also require a more entrepreneurial mindset in new graduates who will be developing the digital services on which major media brands will rest in future.

It's a new area of expertise which is opening up – and a major source of creative energy."

Concept: Media Ethics in the Digital Age

Concept: Media Ethics in the Digital Age | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

"As some First Amendment theorists have suggested, there needs to be a balance between freedom of speech and other values.15 As such, there is an ethical imperative to balance the public’s right to know with citizens' right to privacy.  Similarly, it is important to consider the ethical dimensions of public vs. private and quasi-public figures and data and how much access the public and journalists are granted digitally and online. There is a question of legal rights vs. ethical responsibility, and both of these must be placed in the context of corporate drive for profits and commercial exploitation. "

BeerBergman's insight:

Now, is "rescooping", retweeting, publishing on Linkedin and Tumblr ethical ? Interesting questions about ethics and journalism, but beyond the realm of journalism, about the use of information in general.
